The Franklin Downtown Partnership invites everyone to savor the flavors of Franklin’s downtown restaurant scene in its third Progressive Dinner on Sunday, May 21.

“The progressive dinner is a fun way to experience the great tastes of Franklin’s downtown restaurants in one evening, in the company of good friends. Enjoy flavors from around the world by walking from one local restaurant to the next, without ever having to leave town,” says Jane Curran, event organizer. 

Tickets are $55 per person, including tips and taxes. Beverages are not included. Buy tickets and see menus at the Eventbrite ticket site, The Progressive Dinner link is posted on the FDP website and on the FDP Facebook page. 

Diners will choose a start time and either “Flight A” or “Flight B” when they purchase tickets. Each flight will include a soup at one restaurant, an appetizer at a second location, then dinner at a third. Flights will be staggered to start every half hour beginning at 4:30 p.m., and diners can expect the evening’s activities to last about two hours. 

As a special treat before each flight begins, diners are invited to sample some remarkable olive oils and balsamic vinegars at Franklin’s newest shop, The Little Shop of Olive Oils, located at 5 Main Street.

“We’re thankful for these restaurants for participating and for our sponsors for making this night possible as this is a big fundraiser for the Downtown Partnership,” says Curran.
